Latest update on MV Rentals and the island

COVID-19 Regulations and other information for island visitors

The Massachusetts Department of Revenue asked us to post this notice

Please note that this only applies to rentals of less than 32 days and until May 4th, 2020 (unless extended)

Information on short-term accommodations for lodging and residential rentals

Please review the new guidance issued by the Department of Public Health for lodging accommodations, including hotels, motels, inns, bed and breakfasts, and short-term residential rentals - as well as those arranged through on-line hosting platforms. Under the new guidance, short-term accommodations may only be used for efforts related to fighting COVID-19, for the duration of the state of emergency. For example, short-term rentals may accommodate front line health workers or Massachusetts residents who are receiving treatment, are under quarantine, or otherwise have been displaced from their residences by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We appreciate how so many in the business community have already stepped up to help combat this unprecedented public health threat and we understand how this will cause temporary inconvenience for hosting platforms and operators. Online hosting platforms are asked to inform their users of the new restrictions applicable in Massachusetts. 

On March 31, the Department of Public Health released guidance related to the Governor's order. ORDER | GUIDANCE | FAQ
